Nice, so he'll be in GRap next year. The Griffins keep getting younger and more skilled.

We're (possibly) going to have Nyqvist, Ferraro, Nestrial(sp), TP300, The Rock and AA, Callahan, Oslund all playing for the Griffins next year.

"2009-10: Ferraro appeared in 53 games with the Red Deer Rebels. He scored 16 goals and added 30 assists for 46 points. He was held scoreless in 3 postseason appearances before signing an amateur try-out contract with Grand Rapids in the AHL. Ferraro played in 2 games with the Griffins but did not score."

"One of the fastest players available for the 2009 NHL Draft, he won that category at the top prospects game in Oshawa. Ferraro is a shooter first and foremost (...)"

Cause' having one of the best shooting percentages in the history of the NHL and amassing over 400 goals and nearly 900 point, 15 years career is terrible? I hope we draft Chelios' kid, but hopefully he turns out better than his old man too.

I was really excited after Holland drafted Ferraro, but since we drafted him he's been going in spurts. My expectations of him aren't as high on him anymore. I'm sure he'll become a solid NHLer, but right now, my opinion of him is an Eaves (which isn't a bad thing), I just expected more of a high octane Darren Helm that will score with a ton more tricks in the tool box.

But, I do think he'll definitely crack the big league someday and will become a decent 3rd liner and solid role player.

Same here, i thought he'd be a hybrid of Abdelkader and Helm with slightly more of a scoring touch.

No. Ray Ferraro was always good in my book. Never thought he was great though. I don't know his overall total stats number. But apparently you do. If those are actually is his stats then kudos to him. All I kept hearing about this kid was it's Ray Ferraro's son when we drafted him. So what? I have nothing against the Ferraro family. Actually I enjoyed senior Ferraro when he was playing with Gretzky in LA.

On a positive note, we are seeing Jan Mursak tearing it up and developing into something great. He's exceeding my expectations. Red Wings should just start trading all their top picks down to draft no earlier than the 3rd round. :ph34r:

Crazy how Wings can find such great players in the later rounds.

Don't undetstand why they would sign him now? He wasn't slated for GR until next year, or at least until he starts shaving. Doesn't seem like good contract management. He'll be off his EL contract by the time he makes the big club, no? Do they plan to keep him in Everett for the season, or is he moving to GR? Too many questions that I don't get.
